WindowMaker Colors

Does anyone know of a way (some setting that i have overlooked, or an external program/plugin of some kind, either will do), of changing the color of the windows from the default beige that WindowMaker always has them at to match a theme? I have a dark theme and the beige looks kinda tacky against it, any way to change other things like text box color and such as well (like kde and gnome are able to do)?

that only changes the images/colors used for the built in windowmaker things like icon backs, menu backs, and titlebar stuff, the inside of the window stays the same color.
